This article contains a simple treadmill pace chart that makes it easy to convert minutes/mile running pace to MPH.
It’s nice to have the option of running on the treadmill when the weather outside is inclement. Some people try to avoid the treadmill at all costs. Others embrace the treadmill as a convenient alternative to outdoor running.
I have learned to embrace the treadmill and even have come up with some ideas for how to make running on the treadmill less boring.
I like that the treadmill makes for an easily controlled environment. When you run on a treadmill, you can set your exact pace, incline, and distance. You also don’t need to worry about temperature, wind, or humidity since the treadmill is in a temperature-controlled environment.
If you don’t have a treadmill at home, it’s usually pretty a possibility to be able to use one at a nearby gym or fitness center.
Regardless of how you feel about treadmill running, it’s good to know that you have this as an option to supplement your training.
You should try to make your treadmill runs mirror your outdoor runs as closely as possible. This will help to avoid any disruption to your training and unwanted injuries.
It can definitely be an adjustment when you first begin training on a treadmill. The surface can feel different from outdoor terrain. It’s important to remember to do dynamic warmups before your runs, and stretch after your runs (just like you would for your outdoor runs).
When you first start using a treadmill for your training, it can be a bit of an adjustment since treadmills generally contain MPH and % Incline. Some treadmills contain minute/mile pace but some do not.
I put together a simple treadmill pace chart to help you convert min./mile running pace to Miles Per Hour (MPH).
